Far too few people who call themselves “Christian counselors” or “biblical counselors” know how the core doctrines of the faith ought to inform their counseling model and ought to impact their counselees.
Many people have been asking for all the links in the recent series on Biblical Counseling and Christian Integrative Counseling. Here they are!
I want to respectfully ask my Christian Integrative Counseling and Christian Psychology friends some “rubber-meets-the-road” questions.
How would you describe the continuum between the theory-building approach (what sources a counselor uses or combines to develop a worldview about people, problems, and solutions) of a “biblical counselor” and of a “Christian integrative counselor”?
What would be your one-sentence summary of your approach to understanding people, problems, and solutions? What sources do you turn to in developing your understanding of people, diagnosis of problems, and prescription of solutions?
How would you describe the difference/divide between what makes someone a “biblical counselor” and what makes someone a “Christian integrative counselor?”
